Robert Gunner is Roger “Stretch” Hawkins, leader of a gang that is forced to escape across barren land after robbing a bank in South Africa.
They make it to a near ghost town called Yellow Rock, where the only inhabitants are an old man (Vincent Price) and his granddaughter “Willie” Decker (Diana Ivarson).
“Willie” and her swaying hips become the focus of attention for most of the gang members. But not Dandy (Bob Courtney), who’s spending more time wondering why the old timer continues to live in these here parts.
Soon enough, he discovers the answer: The old man and his daughter have been working a gold mine.
And, naturally, men who would rob a bank won’t hesitate to covet an old man’s gold.
Nor will they hesitate to break Stretch’s word after he agrees to let the old man keep half if he’ll tell where the gold is hidden.
But Stretch plans to keep his promise, and that leads to new friction among the bank robbers. Written on https://onceuponatimeinawestern.com

“Watch Predator Watch this
Familiar isn’t it, Jungle coming to life, invisible enemies, a lone girl who has experienced the terrible thing that comes from the trees. The brave Indian tracker, its all there. Predator by any other name, and worth watching. Forget the other reviews, this was blockbuster (popular soundtrack The Band, horror, fear , scares, b grade cast?)
Great cast they are familiar.
Just watch it, its good.
The director should have made more films, he had a talent and I think it was wasted, I loved it Earl, you did well.” Written by johnfernie-1
